Prehistoric "Easter Parade"
Very neat to come across the recording of "Smile and Show Your Dimple." It was a WWI song written by Irving Berlin. He never believed in wasting anything and when he needed an old-time-sounding song for a 1930's review, he recycled it as "Easter Parade." He modified the melody, but you can hear the newer song in the beginning of the chorus.
